ARCHITECTURAL SIGNIFICANCE (Describe iJiportant architectural features and 

evaluate in terms of other buildings within the community 1 

Even without its majestic mansard third floor (burned 1937), this buildino is * 
valuable component of the streetscape (which it dominated when built: see Ma J of 
EB, 1887). The architectural significance is somewhat marred bv the remodelled 
and covered original windows, the modern "nortico," and several" Incongruous slnns 
However the present owner has maintained the oriainal wood exterior and the 
original second-floor windows. The building has aood ootential for restoration

ARCHITECTURAL SIGNIFICANCE (Describe important architectural features and 

evaluate in terms of other buildings within the community.) 
The most recently-built of the buildings in its row, this is conspicuous for the 
stolidness of its material and design. Its otherwise straight roofline is 
broken by a low gable. A neo-classical wooden frieze with dentils, oainted 
dark brown, is the most distinctive feature. This is one building which stands 
a good chance of being preserved virtually as is. Modification of business signs 
would make it more of the focal point it should be. 



t 



HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE (Explain the role owners played in local or state 

history and how the building relates to the development of the community.) 



This building, although not built for the purpose, 



the purpose, is a memorial to the solidness 
of the Webber family in the commercial, political and social life of the town 
over three-quarters of a century ending in the late 1940' s. 

Kelvin Webber and his son, George H. Webber, owned a great deal of Property 
in the town. Melvin was a teamster, who owned (by 1903) the large wooden livery 
stable (MHC form, Griffin, 17 Central St.) which had stood. on the site of the 
present Webber Block. George owned a large coal and hardware business (corner of 
Spring and Central, torn down 1935). He was active in town affairs and served in 
the Massachusetts Legislature. Mis wife Clara is remembered for her compassion 
and good sense on such boards as the Visiting Nurses and the Library Trustees. 

The Post Office was located in this block (no. 23) from the time it was 
built until the present P0 was built in the late 1960's. Next door (no. 25) 
was Georae Webber's Newstand, which became Thomas Luddy's in 1923, Norris 
Luddy's in 1938, and Maynard Stetson's (Village News) in 1965. The M. Clifton 
Edson Insurance Aaency (now 11 Maole Ave.) had its origin in an office in 
"Luddy's Store" from ca. 1920 to 1936. No. 27, the store on the left side, 
hosted a variety of businesses over the years before the newstand was expanded 
into it. One of these was Myrtle's Yarn Shop, ca. 1937-194? and Dora's 
Sandwich Shoppe, ca. 1945-1952. The Stetsons sold the building and moved the 
newstand next door in ca. 1973. The present occupants of the first floor are 
Allied Auto Parts and Greenbrier Florists. The second floor has apartments and

ARCHITECTURAL SIGNIFICANCE (Describe important architectural features and 
evaluate in terms of other buildings within the community.) 

This building is perhaps in the best and most original condition of any similar 

building in the town. Surprisingly, the monochromatic (teal blue) exterior 

attracts the eye to the details of brackets, simDle moulding, s and the Masonic 

emblem in the gable. (The Masons never met in the building, but one of the Nutter 

brothers was an active Mason.) Hopefully the owners will see the value of keeping 

the original wood fabric. One can visualize this store someday having a 

nineteen-century business sign in place of the numerous and varied modern ones 

now somewhat detracting from its appearance. 

HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE (Explain the role owners played in local or state 

history and how the building relates to the development of the community.) 
The Nutter brothlfr, [Isaac N. and Edmund W ., who built this store, had followed 

their father in business in the Brick Store (MHC form, 49 Bedford) a general store, 
in 1863. They left it to establish a fancy dry goods business in this new building 
in 1367. Edmund branded off, building his own store (cor C entral and W Union?) by 
1874. Isaac kept this one and ran if. with Fred Fuller's help. I.N. Nutter served 
on many town boards, as a state legislator, and was an incorporator of the Savings 

Bank. In 1884 the Public Library, with an appropriation of $100 and the 
appointment of I.N. Nutter as one of its trustees, opened in a room above the store. 

In 1890, Fred Fuller bought out the business (Nutter retained the building). Fuller 
kept the store until 1937; it is not known whether he ever owned the building. In 
1913, the East Bridgewater Cooperative Bank was chartered and opened on the second 
floor of the store, with Fred Fuller as an officer. Fuller also served as local 
tax collector for many years and had the collector's office in a room off the 
store (the one with a separate entrance, or one inside?). 

The next occupant was the First National Store (grocery chain) ca. 1937. It waa 
followed by Laura and Joe George's five and dime store in 1950, (others?), and 
then Maynard and Ginny Stetson's Village News and Coffee Shop in ca. 1973. The 
Stetsons were followed in 1980 by Wayne Olson and in 1985 by the Scudders.

ARCHITECTURAL SIGNIFICANCE (Describe important architectural features and 
evaluate in terms of other buildings within the community.) 



One of two remaining buildings on the main street of the center which were 
originally built as residences (the other being at 17 Central St.; see MHC form 
for Griffin), both now converted to commercial use. 

The original Greek Revival design survives in the columns of the side 
entrance porch, in the pilasters, and in the trim generally. These are presently 
overshadowed by the incongruous remodeling of the facade, but the building still 
has restoration possibilities. 

HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE (Explain the role owners played in local or state 

history and how the building relates to the development of the community.) 

The Nutter family occupied this home from 1845 until the early 1930's. An 
undated photograph in the E3 Public Library Scrapbooks shows Frederick C. Nutter 
on the steps of the home [ca. 1890's?]. The Nutters, three sons of the builder, 
were merchants, bankers, and entrepreneurs responsible for the building of a great 
many business buildings and multi-family dwellings in the center of town between 
1867 and the 1390's. (e.g., see MHC forms for 31 Central St. and the Nutter Block, 
Central and West Union.) Isaac N. and Edward W . also held public offices. 

From 1935 to 1952, the local telephone office occuoied the lower floor. This 
was a two-operator switchboard, where many a town secret was overheard (and mostly 
kept ! ). 

Since 1952, the building has been occupied by a succession of insurance 
agents: Elmer McCarthyand Dana Chase. Mr. Chase is presently (1986) a member 
of the Board of Selectmen and also of the Industrial Development Commission.

HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE (Explain the role owners played in local or state

Builder unknown. Original use was a s a wagon shop in the late 1800's, when 
butcher carts, milk wagons, bakery wagons and dry goods carts for local use were made 
there. 

Moved to the present site in about 1917 by George Webber, whose hardware store 
occupied a large building just to the SE of this one. (torn down 1935). During 1917 - 
1918 the little building was used by the local chapter of the American Red Cross, who 
met there to fold bandages. Mrs. Walter B. Bannerman was in charge of sewing, and 
Mrs. Harry Marble supervised knitting. 

In the early 1920's, the Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company (A & P) opened 
a store in this building, by 1934 moving next door to 41 Central St. (see MHC survey 
form). After this the little building was occupied by the town Water Department, who 
used the front for an office. 

In 1940, Mr. Jack Stengel bought the building and opened first a delicatessen and 
then, by 1945, a package store. The delicatessen is remembered by those attending the 
Allen School at the time who vied daily for the privilege of being sent to Stengel's 
to fetch a large dill pickle for sixth-grade teacher, Miss Grace Smith. 



a package store under 
Since that time it has 



Mr. Stengel sold the building in the 1970's. It remained 
the name of Milton's until sold to Edward Baggia in ca. 1983. 
been a fast food restaurant.

FIRST PARISH MEETING HOUSE 
in East Bridgewater 

The First Parish Meeting House was erected in 1794, the third 
on the site. Typical of all church buildings of the day, it housed not 
only religious activities, but also any civil meetings necessary to the 
operation of the East Parish as one o-f the -four precincts in the Town 
o-f Bridgewater. (Town meetings per se continued to be held in what is 
now West Bridgewater until the incorporation o-f the precincts as 
separate towns in the 1820's.) 

East Parish worshippers were by tradition congregational in 
polity and Calvinistic in doctrine. The Meeting House was the only 
place o-f worship in East Bridgewater -for as long as voting privileges 
were tied to church membership. Once town and church a-f-fairs were 
separated, however, those members di ssat i s-f i ed with Unitarian theology, 
which the Rev. James Flint had introduced in 1306, began to trickle 
away to -form "orthodox" gational churches, leaving the 
Meeting House to the Unitarians. In 1824, the Massachusetts 
Legislature granted permission for the East Parish to be known from 
then on as the "First Parish in East Bridgewater" (which it was). The 
term "meeting house" continued for many years as the familiar name for 
an old landmark and is probably a good one to readopt in planning new 
uses of the building. <The name East Parish Meeting House has also 
been suggested.) 

The First Parish Meeting House was built broadside to the 
street, with the steeple facing west and with three entrances, west, 
south, and east. There were carriage sheds at the back of the lot. In 
1850, the building was turned one quarter round to stand as it now 
does, and at the same time was completely remodeled with the addition 
of the Greek Revival front "porch." Dates of window changes are not 
clear. Attached illustrations show the building as it was 1794-1850 
and in the late 1800's. It was in 1900 that the parish hall was added. 

The Public Library contains descriptions and illustrations of 
the interior of the sanctuary at different times. The 1850 remodeling 
included the removal of the original galleries, the creation of the 
present choir loft, the removal of the hourglass pulpit with a sounding 
b,oard, and the relocation of entrances, pulpit, and pews. In 
1884, architect Walter T. Winslow redecorated the sanctuary, adding a 
scrolled border just under the cove. (The curved ceiling line, related 
as it is to window changes, is of uncertain date.) The Edwardian decor 
remained until the damage to the sanctuary by the intrusion of the 
steeple during the 1938 hurricane. In restoring the sanctuary after 
that disaster, artist and church member Richard F. Bartlett brought 
back the simplicity of the early Greek Revival period with the 
lightening of the color scheme. Except for the mezzanines and other 
incongruities added by the Rev. Paul John Rich in the 1960's and 70's, 
the Greek Revival feeling prevails today and is what should be 
considered, both inside and out, in any plans for future restoration. 
The following page cites a few of the historic features of the building 
which should be considered in preservation planning.

9. Historical significance (include explanation of themes checked above) 

Captain Branch Byram,who lived in the houne from 18.55 (or earlier) to 
his death in i860, is noted to have been the designer of a fire frame cast 
in iron by a local foundry and marketed widely. See "Here and There in 
East Bridgewater ," vol. I, r. 27 (A-2). 

According to the l8?0 U.S. Census, Capt. Byram had a household of 
?8 persons, including 22 females between the ages of 10 and 30. Whether he 
was in this hous then is not known, but its apparent size on the 1835 
map by Hill almost rrecluaes such a large occupancy. 

At any rate, the house itself was apparently not at this location until 
after 1831 . .An elderly -person is recalled to have said that the house was 
old and had been moved there from Union St. Further investigation of the 
building itself is needed to substantiate this. 



10. Bibliography and /or references (such as local histories, deeds, assessor's records, 
early maps, etc. )

T - . it by Silas Harris in 176l. He "/as killed in the Revolutions 
far ir 1777. The shed (-present" kitchen) is said to have been built as 
a c b"r Ler shoo in the mid-l800's. William Bird who lived in the house 

l8l'9 - 1873 * was a r articirant in the first town meeting in 1823 • 

(1750). 
-s Karris inherited the land at age fifteen/from his father, 
Arthur Harris. Silas married Abigail Shaw and built his homestead 
approximately 17^1 and sold it to Israel Bailey in 1772. 

At the date of inventory, this house and its surroundings are 
threatened by the -possible development of an apartment com-clex on 
the land abutting it (beside and hehind)with allowance for only a very 
narrow buffer zone.
